Pregnancy Body Types and How to Dress Up

One of the biggest concerns for women, when they find out they’re pregnant, is that they’ll put on weight. But you also need to remember that this is a time in life which is supposed to be celebrated with joy and happiness. You can’t spend it worrying about what to wear and how to enjoy this period to the most. You deserve to have all the solutions and the perfect wardrobe before your body says it needs them. 

If you’re a few months into your pregnancy and it has started to show, then it is time for you to determine which of the 4 pregnancy body types does your body belong to in order to make your dressing concerns a little more specific and easy to find a solution to.

1. Big Body – Even Distribution of Weight

In this body type, your pregnancy weight isn’t just concentrated on your belly, rather it’s distributed around your whole body. As a result, your arms, legs, and ankles all start to seem puffed up. If this happens, don’t worry. You’re not getting fat, just lavishly pregnant. In order to deal with the type of clothes you have to wear in this period, have a look through all the options you have available at your disposal.

  1. With an evenly distributed body weight, you may want to wear long, elongated dresses if you want to show off the bump subtly while also hiding the parts you’d rather stay hidden, although there is no shame in showing the world you’re pregnant.
  2. Long dresses are extremely comfortable too
  3. Go for black or natural colors like khaki or beige etc.


To get the best kinds of Dresses and Gowns you’ll need for maternity, make sure to have a look.

2. Small Body – Petite 

The petite type has all their weight gain fixated at the belly. If you’re small overall but your abdomen is huge, you need clothing that highlights your curves and takes attention away from your belly and brings it on to you. You are one of those rare breeds that can pull off any style even during pregnancy but you will need a few recommendations during the beginning.

  1. Opt for ruffle or flower-designed tops that give you the style and fashion you deserve to show off during this period.
  2. For the bottom half of the body, you can wear maternity tights or jeans that are elastic on the hips so that they don’t put too much pressure on the belly while also making your legs look elegantly slim and good.
  3. You can also match your dress with the perfect jewelry to get the best possible look.

When it comes to tops and tights, there is no lack in variety, according to designs as well as sizes. May it be leggings, jeggings or old-school and stylish jeans, you have all of it available at the Maternity Pants section.

3. Carrying High

This is the most complicated body type to carry but don’t worry, all hope is not lost yet! The easiest description of this type is that the belly grows upward and makes it seem like the chest is a part of the abdomen. In order to tackle this, there are a few things you can do.

  1. Wear clothes with designs that are different at the chest area and have a different combination in the abdomen area below the chest, in order to make the difference clearer.
  2. You can also wear high elastic pants, or buy skinny belts, and adjust them above the belly to make the difference between the chest and the belly more obvious. 
  3. You can also make quick and easy alterations to what you have in your wardrobe in order to put more emphasis on your curves.

It’s also important that you get the right amount of comfort and relaxation when you sleep because a proper sleeping pattern makes dealing with the other symptoms of pregnancy easier, not to mention these are the last few months you will get to sleep properly until the baby arrives and you will forget what a proper sleeping pattern feels like. The variety of Maternity Lingerie and Sleepwear collection available here will surely interest you.

4. Carrying Low

If your pregnancy bulge is hanging low, seeming as though you’re about to deliver any second, an old saying has it that when this happens you are having a boy, this is something only your doctor can confirm in the next few weeks. In the meantime, we can help recommend a few dressing options to take focus away from your belly and put it on other areas of your body

  1. To take attention away from the abdomen, you may want to wear long tops or dresses that hide away your torso with ease while making you look elegant.
  2. It’s important not to put pressure on your belly, so wear pants that are expandable and soft on the waist.

Whatever your body type, it’s a given that you will have to make alterations in your current wardrobe in order to derive maximum comfort through your dressing during this important 9-month period. Some dresses are meant to be relaxing and convenient for not just one body type, rather all of them. And you will feel the need to wear them more than any other, especially during the end of the pregnancy and even after you’ve delivered the baby. Have a look at the whole stock of Dresses, Pants, and Bras that have been specifically designed for pregnancy.
